Together Project makes change in three interconnected ways: building newcomer social connections, supporting newcomer integration priorities, and amplifying community involvement in newcomer integration in Canada.
We match Welcome Groups of 3-5 volunteers with newly arrived refugees for social and integration support.
We share volunteer resources to help support newcomer households in our Welcome Group Program.
Together Project supports our work through evidence-based program evaluation and research to inform and improve our impact.
We spent a sunny afternoon touring Etobicoke’s Colonel Samuel Smith Park with Linda of the TRCA! We had so much fun learning about native wildlife and plants and exploring the marsh and beaches. Thanks to the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation for this opportunity.

Before Semhar became a Peer Navigator at Women’s College Hospital’s Crossroads Clinic, she volunteered in our Welcome Group Program.
“It’s quite a transformation from being a volunteer and now working side by side with Together Project staff!”

For Welcoming Week, we’re featuring Marwa, one of our Welcome Group volunteers! In this video, she talks about one of her highlights as a volunteer: the newcomers introducing her as one of their closest family members at a wedding!
